- The bookstore will soon sell you either a "custom" unbound
package that contains both books for about 130$,
or the two bound books separately for about 203$ (I think).
Either one of these is fine.
The unbound custom package has no resale value.
To decide which is the better deal, you also have
to know the buyback price.
If you like keeping your textbooks then the bound books
are the way to go.
